The HarperCollins press release states that the books will be “in the vein of Star Wars” and will explore “the story of a boy who forms an unlikely alliance with an enemy. Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge.”

Roth has just begun working on the new books and is, according to the Associated Press, taking her time with their development. In the meantime, the second title in the Divergent trilogy, Insurgent, hits movie screens on March 20th.

The second and final trailer was released last week.
